Using the indoor trainer to focus on specific workouts can make you stronger when it’s time to ride outside again. Quality and structured intervals maximize the benefits of trainer time. The plan includes 4 structured workouts each week that progress in intensity and/or duration from week to week. The first weeks focus on Tempo (zone 3) workouts and build into Threshold (zone 4) workouts as well as Simulated Climbing workouts. Trainer rides can be supplemented with easy recovery rides and outdoor endruance rides to increase weekly training hours.
Riders should be comfortable training with power and have an established FTP or known threshold HR set in Training Peaks to allow for proper intensity.
The plan was created using the TrainingPeaks "Workout Builder" format. The workouts may be uploaded to a device (power meter, heart rate monitor, indoor trainer) or third-party app to help you follow it precisely. The format also makes it easier to visualize what the workout will be like.
